    Default Faster?

    The real question is, is it any faster?

    Last time I tried Cinnamon, the problem I had with is that it was too slow!

    Bringing up the launcher has an unbearable delay. It is just too slow. Has too much latency.

    There were some really neat features in there.
    Especially Edge-Snapping could be very useful.

    Would really love seeing such a feature in Unity.

    You keep asking that. Why don't you get a LiveUSB and try it yourself? Or, maybe you should ask Mint users on their forums if you're not up to seeing for yourself.

    Mutter has had edge snap since close to the beginning. I thought cinnamon forked well after this feature was introduced?

    I thought that, too... Snapping is really an old feature of gnome/mutter. Maybe for some reason they ripped it out or deactivated it?

    Are you sure you aren't thinking about Edge-Tiling?
    Look at the original post to see the difference
    http://segfault.linuxmint.com/2013/1...-2-0-released/

    Unity have Edge-Tiling which is also a great feature, but sometimes
    Edge-Snapping would be better.

    You're right. Mutter has Edge-Tiling, even if it only works for windows convering half of the screen and not quarter-screen-sized windows. Edge snapping, as shown at your link, is different.

    There's no live image with Cinnamon 2.0 available yet, AFAIK the only way to get it for now is from the nightly PPA or building it yourself...
